Your Love That I Lack - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

You left me, saying out of the blue,
“There is nothing left between us to continue.”
I didn’t protest, knowing well,
Love cannot be contained in a jail.
And I know, maybe you are right
For there’s nothing new visible in my sight.
Except the new moon,
Who forgot waxing and started to wane
To turn me more and more insane,
Like I’m a butterfly still inside her cocoon,
Furious enough to come out soon
To be painted wholly in pitch black.
Yes, it is only your love that I lack.

    The situation portrayed in the poem is really painful when a partner says, “There is nothing left between us to continue.” But the void cannot be wished away. This is heart touching. I quote from the poem: Love cannot be contained in a jail /...Yes, it is only your love that I lack. (Report) Reply
